Body of Knowledge
by Carol Dawson




Overview -

It's the story of a secret war, of obsession, fear, loathing, and betrayal. But most of all, BODY OF KNOWLEDGE is the story of Victoria Grace Ransom, the story's 600-pound narrator, whose engrossing secret gradually reveals itself in a novel as big as all Texas. "Gorgeously crafted, intelligent and wholly original."--Los Angeles Times Book Review ; "The best novelist to emerge from Texas in years."--Texas Monthly.
